Doors & Windows Stick
Sticky doors and windows are symptoms of foundation or crawl space damage that should not go ignored. Moisture buildup, high humidity levels, settling soils, poor drainage, and tree root infiltration can cause your home’s structure to become compromised and unstable. In some cases, stabilizing walls by installing piers may be required to ensure the foundation doesn’t shift further. Additionally, replacing beams or strengthening window and door frames may also help prevent major issues from occurring.
In other cases, slab jacking is used to realign foundations that have become misaligned due to shifting soils. If you start noticing your home’s structure is off balance in any way — like doors or windows sticking or not closing properly — then it could be an indication that there is an issue with the foundation of your home that needs to be addressed by a professional.
Ignoring these signs can lead to more serious damage down the road, so it’s important that you address any potential foundation problems as soon as possible in order to maintain the safety of your home.
A professional repair specialist can assess the situation and let you know what steps need to be taken to fix the problem. If a more serious issue is at play, they can provide you with estimates for necessary repairs and work with you to ensure your home’s foundation or crawl space stays in good condition for years to come.
